Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

A Quote from Kathleen Norris
Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.
A Quote from 'Anonymous'
Knowledge is free at the library. Just bring your own container.

There's nothing to match curling up with a good book when there's a repair job to be done around the house. Joe Ryan

Some say life is the thing but I prefer reading.
a song/poem for kids!
Give me a Break!! by Alan Katz (to the tune of Home on the Range) "Oh give me a break, 'Cause I made a mistake, And my library book's overdue. The Fault is all mine- Oh boy, what a fine, It was due back in 2002! Home, home's where it's hid! This is such a bad thing that I did. And you might say, "Gee Whiz!" 'Cause the book's title is.... "How to Be A Responsible Kid"!
A Quote from Carl Sagan
When our genes could not store all the information necessary for survival, we slowly developed brains. But then the time came, perhaps ten thousand years ago, when we needed to know more than could conveniently be contained in our brains. So we learned to stockpile enormous quantities of information outside our bodies. We are the only species on the planet, so far as we know, to have invented a communal memory stored neither in our genes nor in our brains. The warehouse of that memory is called a LIBRARY.
